Enjoy a 40 mile round trip ride on the Branson Scenic Railway during your trip to Branson. Leaving right from Main Street Branson you can be whisked away on a relaxing ride through the gorgeous country side.
The train goes at a blazing 25mph as it takes you on the Scenic Branson Railroad. The ride goes into Arkansas but don’t blink you might miss the sign saying you crossed the state line.
This ride is super relaxing! You can sit back and just soak up the beautiful scenery out the windows.
Here are a couple of quick videos showing the gorgeous scenery along the way.
Did I mention the ride is truly relaxing!
There are multiple cars to choose from for seating. Make sure and walk through the entire train to find the seat that you want. We found a car towards the back of the train and were one of a few passengers in the car. It was so quiet and relaxing.
